Morning loves! If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you probably know that Too Faced is one of my all time favorite brands. There is not a single item I’ve tried from them that I didn’t like and they always manage to impress me with their products. One thing I never reached for in the store though, was their eye shadows. For some reason I though they wouldn’t be comparable with my MAC or UD ones and didn’t really care to even swatch them. I of course, couldn’t be more wrong! Last year I got a little Too Faced kit as a birthday present and this little beauty was rolling around the pouch, begging me to try it. And I did. Needless to say, this triggered my obsession with Too Faced eye shadows and now I have quite a few of them! :)
I will definitely do a Too Faced eye shadow collection at some point but as of now I am presenting you my absolutely favorite one – Magic Mushroom ($18). This little gem is part of Too Faced Exotic Color Intense line and it’s such a stunning, beautiful color that is very unique and doesn’t look like anything else I’ve laid my eyes on! It is this gorgeous light pink-y color with emphasis of gold running through it. In the pan Magic Mushroom looks quite pink but once you put it on it transforms into a beautiful light rose gold. The cool thing about this eye shadow is that it kind of changes it’s color a bit depending on the lighting and could appear more cool-toned (like in the hand swatch) or warmer. I am sorry that the camera cannot seem to do proper justice to the color, but so you know – it’s ever prettier in person! :) Magic Mushroom is a lovely iridescent shimmer but not overly so. It is perfectly suitable for daytime wear, as it looks quite natural and not too over the top. What I adore about this particular shade is that it catches the light so well and brightens up my complexion beautifully. The lovely blend of colors makes my green eyes pop nicely. I like to wear Magic Mushroom on its own, all over the lid, as I love how it opens up the look. Usually, I pair it with some sort of bright fuchsia lipstick and I am ready to go! <3
As for the formula of Too Faced eye shadows goes, I would say it’s brilliant! They’ve reformulated them a while ago and it is absolutely fault free now. The shadows are creamy and soft as butter and apply like charm. I feel like Too Faced eye shadows are ever creamier than my MAC and Urban Decay ones, which is amazing! They blend effortlessly onto the skin and a little goes a long way. The color pay-off is incredible, almost as pressed pigments. I have never experienced any fallouts and the eye shadows stay in place for the entire day, even without primer. Too Faced shadows are also Vegan-friedly and Paraben-free. Great!
The only downside for Magic Mushroom, as well as the other eye shadows from the range is the price tag. $18 for a single shadow is pretty steep but I am always willing to pay more for a brilliant product and these are exactly that. The packaging is to die for, the color is absolutely gorgeous and the formula is spot on! I highly, highly recommend checking Too Faced shadows if you have the chance. I promise you – you won’t regret it! <3
Have you tried Magic Mushroom before? Do you love it as much as I do? Have you tried any Too Faced eye shadows yet?
Lots of love,
